Syncing Google Calendar with drchrono
The drchrono EHR allows you to sync your drchrono calendar to your Google Calendar. This feature is designed to provide a convenient way to quickly glimpse at your day's schedule but is not a replacement to the drchrono scheduling system.
- Due to HIPAA requirements, some appointment details are not displayed in Google Calendar. Only the office name, exam room, patient chart ID number, and appointment duration will be displayed.
- Due to technical resource limitations, the drchrono EHR will only sync two weeks of activity.
- Events added to Google Calendar do not sync with your drchrono calendar.
